It’s been so long since I read it that I don’t really remember what happened… I still have to read The Dream Thieves. It’s been sitting on my bookshelf since September but I haven’t had time to read it ):

It’s a joke………
No actually, Jade’s the real bully and you should all block her instead.
Anonymous: hello, lena! im sorry if you've answered this question already, but i was wondering where you downloaded the book thief? thank you! :)
The movie or the book? I don’t have either downloaded…the movie I saw in theatres and the book I bought at Barnes & Noble.
Anonymous: Hey Lena! I know you're busy but could you try making some reign icons? You have the prettiest ones.
I can but I probably won’t be able to make/post them till later tonight (or maybe Wednesday depending on how long it takes for me to finish my essay). I’ll try my best to make them tonight, though (:
Anonymous: shit you've read 75 books since january? wow man
My goal was 100 but it doesn’t look like I’m gonna make it *sigh* ):
Anonymous: i think divergent did an OKAY job with casting, but i'm still fairly angry about it. if shailene does a good job as tris, then i'm fine with her. like the other anon, i just pictured tris to be short. it's just tobias was supposed to be mixed race. also, they actually cut out uriah and zeke FROM THE MOVIE, who were both POC (i think they were middle-eastern?). at least they cast christina and tori right.
I AM STILL SO UPSET ABOUT URIAH AND ZEKE. UGHHHHHHHHHHH. Without them, there is literally no one left that can show the relationship between Tris and the Dauntless-borns. And this is probably me being nitpicky, but I kinda wished they’d cast someone full Asian as Tori instead of a halfie because there are rarely any full Asian females in big Hollywood blockbusters. But whatever, I should just be glad that they didn’t whitewash her.

Haha, glad that people like you are actually enjoying this :p
Anonymous: Man, truth be told, it sucks being a person of color when it comes to auditioning and what not. So many people read young adult books and always assume that the main character is Caucasian so that means that the producers feel like they have to only cast white people for the main or else another Rue scenario will happen. I blame the readers and fans as well. No one can take a stand and make Katniss a POC without losing thousands of fans and movie budget.
Yeah, it’s more just a cultural phenomenon where “white” is the default. I’m definitely guilty of assuming certain characters are white even though they’re racially ambiguous. It just sucks that stuff like the Rue “controversy” occurs because it’s stuff like that that deters people from taking risks with POC because they elicit negative reactions from people.
